Many have reported, that Louisiana elite SS/star/WSLB Laurence Jones grew up an Ohio State fan, and is a huge fan of Urban Meyer as well. Lots of LSU fans a few months ago noted OSU was the team to beat if OSU offered.
Lots of elite offers for Jones, including Bama and LSU.
Just saw and read on the OSU time line events, right under the front page Bucknuts pictures box and BP, that Jones got a written offer from Ohio State, and this 247 site shows the OSU offer now, and confirmation of it on his page with twitter notes tied to a few sites.
Big time elite, top 100 player in the early top 100 on the 247 for 2014, and a 5 star most other sites for 2014.
Elite, elite kid.
Lets hope the OSU love is still flowing, and this offer and OSU working him, gets him back on track for OSU.
Could be a monster pick up at a spot of need, SS/star IMHO.

Glad they offered, but I'm always skeptical when kids from other regions claim OSU as a favorite even though they have no connection to the school. But hey, I was skeptical about Michael Hill as well and we know how that turned out.
any film of him this year.
When is the last time we pulled a big-time recruit out of Louisiana?
Formerly known as Hodgepodge.
he wouldn't let his players pose in the Playboy All-American magazine edition, he said, "Cause you can't play football with an erection."

Maybe not a direct connection to OSU, but Malcolm Jenkins doesn't hide his appreciation of his alma mater. And he plays same position. Looks like at least one game played on the saints field maybe he and Malcolm "bumped into" each other and had a little convo about OSU.
